Bomb Run and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by John Severin - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Will ElderpreviewsJohn SeverinHarvey KurtzmanEC ComicsComing Attractions 13 Feb 2014 11:50 AM

Harvey Kurtzman's taut, humanistic scripts and John Severin's gritty, detailed artwork (inked with preternatural precision, usually by Will Elder) combined to make some of the finest war stories ever told in any medium in the pages of EC Comics. Bomb Run and Other Stories collects all of this essential work in one hardcover volume for the first time.

Our downloadable excerpt comes complete with the Table of Contents and three full stories: the centuries-spanning "How They Die!"; the cautionary WWII tale "Weak Link!"; and the high-flying, Greek myth-inspired title story. Originally on the calendar for July, we wrapped this one a little early, so it might move up on the schedule. Either way, you can pre-order your copy right now and be among the first to get a copy (and combine it with the upcoming Joe Orlando volume Judgment Day for 20% savings!).

Bomb Run and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by John Severin

John Severin produced some of the finest war comics ever drawn during his long, distinguished, and versatile career, and working in collaboration with other greats like Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder, his work in the genre for EC Comics is unmissable. Lucky for you, we've gathered all of that material together for the first time in a single volume under this handsome cover. Bomb Run and Other Stories is just off to the printer, is available for pre-order, and launches in July. Keep it tuned for more previews.

Hip Hop Family Tree Two-in-One by Ed Piskor

Ed Piskor made a real subtle modification to the cover art for Hip Hop Family Tree Two-in-One, one of our two 2014 Free Comic Book Day offerings available exclusively at comic shops on Saturday, May 3. See if you can spot the difference from the previous version! (Hint: we're not talking about the "mature readers" notice.)

The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsConor StechschulteComing Attractions 10 Feb 2014 11:10 AM

The Amateurs, the debut graphic novella by Conor Stechschulte, is at the printer for release this spring. One part Samuel Beckett, one part Laurel and Hardy, one part Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this is a story of escalating madness, mystery, slapstick, and violence unlike any you've read before.

Our downloadable 8-page preview includes the horrifying prologue and introduces Jim and Winston, our protagonists who, after a strange night of sickness, arrive at work and are baffled to find that their butcher shop is as empty as their minds are of how to do their job. Pre-order now and get the rest of the story in May.

The Complete Peanuts 1950-1952 (Vol. 1) Softcover Edition by Charles M. Schulz

We are pleased to debut the final cover art for The Complete Peanuts 1950-1952 Softcover Edition! The acclaimed, award-winning series, in paperback, with a new design by art director Jacob Covey, and following the same release pattern as the original hardcovers: 2 volumes per year, with an annual slipcased 2-volume set. This first volume arrives in early Summer and you can pre-order now.

(By the way, we premiered this image yesterday on The Complete Peanuts Facebook fan page, so you hardcore Schulz-philes ought to go give that a "like" if you want first dibs on stuff like this!)

EC Slipcase Vol. 1 box art

Here's a clearer view of the box art for The EC Comics Slipcase Vol. 1, coming in April, featuring the artwork of Jack DavisHarvey KurtzmanAl Williamson, and Wallace Wood on the outside and their respective EC Comics Library volumes inside. Nice, right? That's gold ink on there, as befitting the quality of the material inside and the luster of our unique and impeccable presentation.

For those of you who plan on replacing your standalone copies of each book with the box set (since we're not able to offer empty boxes), might we suggest "paying it forward" by donating your duplicate books to a good cause such as your local library, or passing them along as gifts? Share the EC love!

Heroes of the Comics by Drew Friedman - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jack KirbyDrew FriedmanComing Attractions 30 Jan 2014 12:42 PM

Heroes of the Comics by Drew Friedman

In Drew's own words:

"This is the cover to my upcoming book HEROES of THE COMICS, designed by the great Jesse Marinoff Reyes. The book comes out in early July and officially debuts at the San Diego Comic Con."

We got a great response to the preliminary cover we showed with Drew's portrait of Siegel & Shuster, but we went with the King, and for good reason, as you can see. Don't worry, Jerry & Joe are still inside the book, along with dozens and dozens more of the titans and pioneers of American comics, all gorgeously and expressively rendered, and accompanied by loving and informative essays by Drew. No comics lover's coffee table will be complete without this beautiful, oversized hardcover.

Be among the first to get a copy by pre-ordering today!

Cosplayers & Doctors: two new comics by Dash Shaw
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsDash ShawComing Attractions 30 Jan 2014 11:53 AM

Cosplayers by Dash Shaw

In the new Previews catalog at your local comic shop you'll find our solicitation for a new 32-page one-shot comic book by Dash Shaw. Cosplayers is a sweet & sour, sad & funny story that follows the adventures of Annie and Verti as they shoot homemade movies for YouTube, guerilla-style, and face some unexpected consequences. Read the first three pages of the story below, ask for it at your local comic shop, and look for it on the racks in April! (We'll be taking orders, too.)

Cosplayers pg 1

Cosplayers pg 2

Cosplayers pg 3

And yesterday, Dash broke this news on his blog

Doctors comes out this October from Fantagraphics Books. It's 96 pages, 6 X 8", full color.

Here's the catalog copy Fanta wrote:

"This new graphic novel from acclaimed cartoonist Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, BodyWorld, New School) is his most taut book to date. Dr. Cho is the creator of the Charon, a device that allows his staff to enter a dead patient's afterlife by taking the form of a memory in the patient's consciousness, and bring he or she back to life with one catch: the experience is traumatic and the process kills them again soon thereafter. But for some bereaved, the opportunity is priceless. So when Bell is killed in a random accident, her daughter hires Dr. Cho's team to bring her back. But what if Bell didn't want to come back? The dying unconsciously create the afterlife they want, or feel they deserve, in their minds before everything fades to black. Isn't that better than the reality, and no less meaningful than life itself? Part science-fiction thriller, part family drama, part morality play for the 21st Century, and quite possibly Shaw's best book to date."

Welp, there you go. Two new comics from Dash to look forward to this year!
